What is a Dream?

 

I have been receiving a lot of questions about what is a Dream, so I thought I would write a Primer on what it is.

First it’s not the one you had last night…while you were sleeping…lol.

It’s your Vision, Mission and all your Goals rolled into One Thing. It’s the way you want to Be…the State you want to be in…like being Happy.

Did you know you are living your Dream right now?

Yes, Your Dream is always in the Present. It’s the way you are…your Being!

Your Dream comes from your Decisions. They have taken you to where you are right now.

So, if you don’t like the one you have, get a new one, by doing these simple, exciting things:

You start by thinking…visualizing what you want your Dream to be.

So what do you really love to do? How do you want to feel?

Think about it…Feel it…by getting quiet…outside and inside.

There are techniques I can show you how to do that, and they unique to each one of you.

Next watch yourself live that Dream. Become the Watcher!!!

Separate yourself from all your past memories and all your future nightmares…and just be in Your Dream.

See it…Be it.

Third, see what ideas come up. They will things you can do to realize Your Dream.

Then do the first one you get. I call it the Next Right Thing…NRT.

It will be something that excites you…and easy to do.

After that, get feedback…and do the NRT that you get…from Being the Watcher!!!

Do that over and over…live your life like that…and You Will Find Your Dream!!!

How Grieving helps to reevaluate life…which moved me into the Metaphysical.

All these thoughts on grieving have helped me to reevaluate my life. It has given me a Purpose…to pass on my family traditions and values. It has also brought me think about the metaphysical and “God.”

I specifically have been thinking about how existence could have begun.

I really like the theory that in the beginning there was just “One.” There was no time or space, because everything was One…like all together…at the same time.

Then that One wanted to realize itself, so it created “Two,” which created the Universe…and here we are. Simple right…well getting to Two was, but after that…will take more analysis.

It is said that if you try to randomly solve a Rubik’s cute, it will take billions of years, but if you have only one feedback after every try…whether it was right or wrong…a 1 or a 0…it will only take hours.

So that is how the Universe went from Two to today. There was feedback…meaning the every action had a reaction…and someone kept track. We can call that Source, or God…what it has been traditionally called.

Some call the One as nothing…like zero…i.e. atheists and some scientists, but that does not make sense logically, or mathematically, or have any meaning in physics…at least to me.

Maybe some scientist can explain it, but it would have to make a lot of sense, and not be too complicated. Mathematics…the language of science…has problems with zero. It can’t be manipulated. So to start with zero creates a problem. Zero multiplied or divided by anything is undefined. So to divide nothing into something…like 2/0 doesn’t make sense.

So I think we have decided that it has to be One. That’s what all the religions and mystery schools have told us too. Also that is a confluence between Science and Faith.

To know oneself is a basic teaching of metaphysics. It’s also called self-awareness…I call it the God Quality in each of us. We can think about ourselves…referring to the past and the future. We understand there is something bigger that us. We can judge our actions by the result they created. That is the same way God operates…always seeing the result…in an ultimate way.

Now I have a question about the feedback of the result of each move of the Rubik’s Cube. I said that each move will have a 1 or 0 feedback…right or wrong. Well, who knows what is right or wrong, unless you know the outcome… the completed Rubik’s Cube. So one must have solved it at least once to know if each move is moving towards the goal.

Hmmm. Then I thought about God. How does He know what is right or wrong unless He has been through all of Existence already? So he started as One…became self-aware by becoming Two…and then what?

It says in the Bible, that He knows the end from the beginning. That must be why He is God. That is way over my head!

To know right and wrong…ultimately…means you know the outcome. Wow! That is True Self-Awareness!

So how does this work for Us? In the same way we must realize…visualize… an outcome, and then we can judge our performance against reaching that Goal. That is what is called How to Find Our Dream!

First we must access that God Part of us that knows our Outcome…our Dream…and then start taking steps to create it.

Ahhh…another thing…create it. What does that mean?

It is the result of self-awareness and free will. They change our decisions and actions based on feedback and our Dream! And that creates a new reality!

So what is Reality anyway? It follows that it is the sum total of our results. As is said, change our actions, which create results, which changes how we perceive and interact with the feedback. That’s why a positive outlook is the best way to view the results, because it allows for seeing the possibilities in Finding Our Dream.

And it always starts with the first thing we do. It’s called the Next Right Thing. We really don’t know if it’s right until we do it, and the feedback gives us the answer.

So if the result took us away from our Dream…some would call it failure…we know we must make a change. It doesn’t mean we abandon our Dream. We change how we react, or our strategy, and do the Next Right Thing. It might be doing the same thing, with modifications, over and over, until we are shown another Next Thing.

So failure, or the “wrong” result, isn’t really a big thing. It’s just showing us how and where we need to change.

That should help overcome fear…what other people say…and procrastination.

Just as in solving the Rubik’s cube, the awareness of ourselves creates a path that we can follow through feedback.

Feedback from other people is crucial, as we can sometimes get too caught up in our own reality, and then cannot see the “obvious.”

That’s where I come in. Using my tips, techniques, strategies and intuition developed over 40 years of business, coaching and consulting, I can help you find Your Next Right Thing and show you How to Find Your Dream.

More Thoughts on Grieving.

So what are we connected to in our family and our ancestry? Are we connected to the person…like mom…or do we want the connection to the memory…the roots of who we are. We will miss the person…and that is good… but they are no longer here. So we have to distinguish between the person and the thing that we should hold on to.

We talked a lot about the family and any memories we had. A new one that came up was that my maternal great grandmother was a moonshiner. She had the “stil” under the chicken coop, and the Feds could never find it. Pretty funny…huh!

So it’s really not about the person, it’s about the actions and the memories that keep us rooted. Knowing what the family did, where they came from and what they stood for gives us that needed grounding.

It is imperative we think that way, so we can process our grief, and move on in life. Associating the person with the memory will disassociate us from the pain and grief of missing them in person. Realizing that the family will continue helps us to see the big picture…that we a part of a larger family…a tradition…something to be passed on. Then it becomes a torch we can carry, as we are the next generation. We pass the traditions and memories to our children.

When we realize that there is purpose (passing on traditions and memories) to our lives we feel more secure, and we can look to the future with the hope of making a difference and contributing to humanity.

The other thing is that we realize…as many have said…that it is relationships that matter more than accomplishments and money.

So get to know as much about your family as you can, because one day the next generation will ask you questions about the family’s past. And then you will be able to tell them funny stories like having a moonshiner in the family!

It will be great fun and will keep the continuity and connection going!

Thoughts on My Mother’s Passing

Yesterday, I said I was going to write about my Mother’s passing. Well, here goes…

As you can imagine, it was a difficult time, although not unexpected. My mother had been in failing health for some time, due to a weak heart. She was on oxygen for 2 years, and her quality of life was just not very good.

So I expected it. She never went into a nursing home and died in the hospital in fairly good spirits. It’s the way I would want to go.

I had some grieving time where I felt my “roots” had been taken away…as my Dad died in 1996. Living in Ecuador disconnects one from family, and I had to deal with the possibility that I would not be seeing my siblings much in the future.

I had this overwhelming feeling of “I don’t know.” It was like everything that I valued was being questioned. It was very traumatic. Did you ever get that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach, when you don’t know what is going to happen? Well, this one was much bigger than I ever felt before.

I went through a couple of days of when people asked me how I was doing…all I could say was, “I don’t know.” It was very unsettling.

Then things began to get better. It helped when my sister said she really wanted to keep the family together by meeting once a year. Then my brother said we were all invited to his place for Christmas. We talked about other places we could meet too. It was very reassuring.

So I guess I am over the worst of the grieving process. I learned that family is very important, and that being connected is crucial.

So if you are going through the same thing right now…or will be… keep the connection you have with your family.

If there are any further insights that I get through this process, I will be sure to let you know…so you can be better prepared for the inevitable.

Thanks for listening!!!

Review of My Life…2014

2014

Now for the Big One!!!

I wrote about my journey up until then…Oct 2014. I hadn’t written anything for 3 years! And I had just moved to Ecuador, which was a big change for me. I shut down my business in the States (real estate appraising) which I realized was very stressful.  I said I had only posted occasionally, because I felt I didn’t have much to say, but there was still something on the inside that needed to be let out.

I then detailed my journey…how I became disillusioned about the lack of power in the churches I had attended. Fortunately, one of my acquaintances introduced me to Kevin Trudeau… who was teaching the secrets of the rich. That opened my eyes. He said things were intentionally kept from us to protect their power! But that even if we knew about it 90% of us would never use it! Wow!!!

That started a different story and journey for me, which will take more than a lifetime to fulfill!

The first secret I was given was we are all Responsible for where we are in life…and that’s good… because then we can change it. But that’s scary and why 90% of us will not apply this first secret.

Second is about Control, which is related to the first.  It’s about letting ourselves be influenced  and distracted by all the advertising, TV, Facebook and  all the rest of the images, emotions and feelings we let into our life every day. It’s about how we think we “deserve a break,” but that’s really giving our responsibility…our control…to someone else. How many of us let others influence us, and keep us stuck, but inherently know that we are ultimately responsible? What do you think? I think way down deep we all know that we are totally responsible.

I took this knowledge to the people in my church, including the pastors, and received a very lukewarm response. Many wouldn’t even look at the info, and the pastors said it wasn’t “of God.” I thought, what is so “anti-God” about this. It increased the questions and doubts about the “Church,” about how people have twisted what Jesus said.

Then, since the blog was called God Things back then, I wrote how science could explain creation by God wanting to “know Himself.” The theory said that from a point, which coalesced from the Void, a circle was created, or realized. Then more circles were naturally formed. (This is a very simplistic explanation of a very deep, in depth topic.) For more info check out Sacred Geometry. We will explore this much more too.

Since we all started from “a circle,” we are all made up of the same stuff, which is not only a shape, but a vibration…a frequency…another very deep subject we will get into.

Also since we all come from the same thing/place, when we hurt others, we hurt ourselves.

Science and mystics say we are self-aware, meaning we create our own reality….by our perspective and our “stories.”

Back to control….does “giving our lives to Jesus” sound like being responsible or like giving up control.  Jesus never talked about it…but St Paul did…sort of. Just saying…

Once we give our lives to someone else, does it relieve us of responsibility? I have experienced that many, many times…like, don’t worry, Jesus is in control, or the devil is making me do it.  What I did read…more than once… is that the Kingdom of God is within us, and that our works show our Faith.

Summing it up, in order to fulfill our Destiny, and Find Our Dream, we need to focus on 3 things:  There is a Plan, and it is our Responsibility to be in Control of our lives.

Nov 2014

Finding a Healing God” I related God Within Us to healing, and how that makes everything else fall into place.

I stated that we have the energy and ambition to go after what completes and makes us happy.

To know that we are in command of our lives, and, therefore, of our health…and to stay in the present to let ourselves be who we really are, we can access God With Us to fulfill our lives.

Next was “Healing from a God Perspective.”  I said that healing comes from within. We are sick in ourselves, so that’s where healing has to come.

But our mind wants us to think it comes from outside ourselves, which then gives control to something else.

Once we realize that we are Eternal…Perfect and Complete…that Love is the controlling factor, that we can begin to change.

So search within yourself, to Find God, because that is all there is, and that everything is right where it should be.  

“Right where it should be” is a very powerful statement. It says that everything is in order…Perfect! That may be hard to understand, but we don’t need to know how or why. We just need to know it!

Just think about it…if we are part of a perfect Creation, then healing is a part of us, and we need to do is access it!

So visualize it…being part of God…and realize it. Really God is everywhere, everything, throughout time.

In “Mind Control” healing comes from within, and knowing who God is was stated again.

Then the next thing was who is in control.

The Present is all there really is, but our mind is always taking us back into our past and then projecting that into the future. It wants to protect us, which is it role.

But, once we realize that have a Divine Self within us that is really what should direct us, then the mind can do its job, which is making plans, taking care of everyday decisions, and regulating our body.

I call it our True Self, and focusing on that we find our Calling (this was the start of Finding Your Dream…I think.)

It’s not selfish…like getting what I want no matter what happens to other people. It means to ask what is Best for me and all of Creation. That begins to quiet the mind. As an example, have you ever had a new idea, an inspiration? Did it come from your mind, or did it just appear? It came from our True Self communicating with us…and, relating it to healing, it comes from the same place.

So put your mind in second place…where it should be. I am not saying it will be easy, but it is simple!

Just begin to think on God, Creation, and to watch yourself think. Watch your thoughts of fear, guilt and shame come bubbling up, and then…watch them go! They are really not yours. They are just figments and they want to trap you. They want to destroy your control.

Just think of “everything as it should be.” Your mind wants you to believe it should be different…that this situation is not “right,” that someone did us wrong, and that it’s their fault. It tells us that we are right and it’s someone else’s responsibility to fix it.

Remember we are totally responsible for ourselves, and we have everything inside of us to meet any challenge!

Next was a Treatise on “Free Will.” (I write with a lot of ellipses.) Do we really have free will? Well, only if we exercise it…for the right reasons. That is not taking advantage of others, or going for the “bling,” which doesn’t make us happy anyway.

It comes from control…self-control…or a better word would be command. To be in command of our reality is the ultimate free will.

It is the freedom from our mind that truly makes us free! It is the quieting of our mind…looking at it from the “observer” perspective…which bring us to our True Self.

That brings compassion…accepting that the way they are…and loving the way we are…which will give the ability to change…to US.

Next, the blog title was Treatise on Control. I noticed a lot of grammatical errors in this post. Must not have been in my “right” mind.

Anyway, this is one for us control freaks!

Many of us think that control means, “doing what we want,” and not have anyone “telling us what to do.” But actually, the media, parents, authority figures and those we want to please, really control us more than we know. Also we have incessant thoughts going through our mind all the time. It really comes down to who you listen to.

So to regain command of our lives we need to control the messages. Stop the chatter, the reliving of the past, and the fantasy of the future,

We can start by admitting that we have problems, and that we can’t solve them by ourselves and that we need help…from our Creator…who resides in us. Then once we are honest, we can begin to deal with each issue as it triggers us, which allows us to see ourselves as we truly are…the way God sees us. It returns command and control to us. Now that’s what I like…being in control!!!

In Dec 2014 I wrote 1 post called The Important vs. The Urgent.

It was about Deanie’s (my wife) and my life at the time. I wrote about all the “Urgent” things that were interfering from getting the “Important” things done. The Urgent things were buying a different car, as the one we had was dying. It took 3 weeks to find one and another 10 days to transfer the money. Going to visit Deanie’s sister was another “had to be done.” They were important, but no blog writing or other important things got done.

That’s how life is…full of interruptions…such as today…my computer crashed and I had to start over on this blog post. But we need to stay focused, and get back to our Dream…relentlessly…never giving up…always going on. Seeing the end…feeling it…living it!!!

Review of My Life…2011

2011

The blog was called “God Things” back then, so I wrote a lot about God from a Christian perspective.

The first post was about being recompensed. That all evil must be paid for…and we all know it, because we beat ourselves up for our own evil. We create our own hell, thru our own guilt and shame. Then there is God who saves us from it, which is the most important thing.

Side note: the concept of an ultimate evil or hell is hard to reconcile with the Christian idea of “God.” God is all knowing, everywhere, everything and all powerful. So where is there a place for “no God,” or hell, an interesting puzzle? The idea that God is Ultimate is, by definition, the only Ultimate there is…there can’t be 2 of them…heaven and hell. Otherwise there are 2 Ultimates, and that’s a problem. Anyway we will get into that later. See, I graduated.

Then I wrote about a trying to educate a “fool,” who doesn’t listen. I wonder how many times I haven’t listened…and that makes me a fool! How about you? Let’s get real here!

Next I wrote about a missionary having a crisis of faith in the face of the devastation in Haiti. He had a frank conversation with God, and how he needed to keep his faith. I then questioned how our faith is. Do we blame Him when times are bad…or run to Him to save us… and, otherwise ignore Him. Or do we realize the Faith is rewarded, and, really, there is no other one to turn to… I like that!

Then I talked about how St Paul called the Galatians poor, silly, thoughtless, unreflecting and senseless. Whoa, pretty heavy… Am I, are you the same… with our 1 hour of church, 5 minutes of devotions, and then…what. I said God has many more deeper things for us…actually miracles… to do. I like that too.

Next one was about becoming free of our addiction and constant temptations…that we give in to… and realizing that we are Sons and Daughters of the Most High…and the way to Freedom is having an intimate relationship with Him.

Then I wrote about not having a past…as relating to our sins. God doesn’t remember them, so why should we. We should the person with “no past.”

The next one was a God Thing. He has a purpose for us. I wondered what that might be for me. I then said that all that needs to happen is to “rest in Him,” and that doesn’t seem like a lot of work. I then prayed the prayer of Peace. I feel better!!

Next was how do we get “There?” What, or where is “there” anyway. We all have an idea. Living a good life might be a good goal…but who has ever done that? Then there the thing about being on your path. Well that doesn’t work for psychopaths very well. We are too apt to become deceived…with the best of intentions. Then I said God has the right path and to follow Him will get us there. Brings up a lot of things that we can get into. Such as: how do we know the right path…and if we are getting it from God…and does any creed of religion know the right path…for us? We’ll talk about that.

Next was Where is our Place? Where do we Fit In? Doesn’t it say that we are all part of One Body and we all “fit.” So we are part of The Plan, so we can have confidence and be Free, knowing the Creator is perfect and has a perfect place for us. That’s comforting, and also compelling and exciting!! So we all should get to know the Creator…intimately…overcoming the “I’m such a worm” mentality.

The Gospel of Mark…in the Bible…chronicles many miracles. They have caused much controversy, but they are there. The glaring absence of them in the “Church” is disturbing. Wonder what it would take to get a taste of that again. Again, intimacy and receiving love would make a very great impact.

The Review of My Life….You Should Try It!

I got the inspiration to go over the past few years of my life and see how I have changed. So I went to my blog at VinceSalzer.com and started reviewing the posts.

Then I got the idea to write about them…to “feel” how I felt at the time.

I began to write and was guided to divide it up into sections, by date, to show the progression (I call it “graduating.”) of my life. It is a big writing project, so it will be published in parts. I think it can resonate with you…and if it does, let me know.

First, back then I was a pretty staunch Christian…not so much now….staunch that is. I have been “graduating” from how I believe all my life. My beliefs helped me tremendously…got me thru a devastating divorce…but then I needed more…as I saw that a lot of the teachings I was hearing weren’t making a difference in my life and many of the lives that I saw. So I kept searching… But back to how I thought 5 years ago. It wasn’t all bad.

So let’s dig in…

Another Thing for You…
